San Sebastian and Madrid to La Tomatina

Buñol, Spain

28 - 30 August

RIDE WITH US FROM SAN SEBASTIAN AND MADRID TO LA TOMATINA

You will meet us at Kursaal Opera House in Sen Sebastian , or Plaza de Toros Las Ventas in Madrid at  for your San Sebastian and Madrid to La Tomatina trip. We will jump on the bus and there you will be introduced to your friendly guides, meet your fellow Stokies, and get into the La Tomatina spirit. The bus is spacious and there’s plenty of room to stretch out. Once we arrive there is nothing left for you to worry about, apart from having a good time, as everything is taken care of. There will be a bunch of friendly guides to answer all of your questions and help you out when necessary. Then let the days of fun commence, with lots of beers, amazing people and great experiences.

LA TOMATINA IS SPANISH FOR EFFIN’ FUN!

Thousands of people stream to Buñol and cram into the little streets like, well, like squished tomatoes. Some people try to climb a greasy pole to reach a succulent pork, and then the cannons fire and the trucks come. Once the trucks have jammed their way through the crowd and unloaded their tons of soppy ‘matoes, the streets go blurry, tomatoes are flung and friendships are founded and toppled in this epic battle.

When the madness is over, we’ll rinse off and head back to our glorious camp by the beach. We’ll spend the afternoon swimming in the sea and drinking deeply of the unlimited beer and sangria. We’ll feed you a home-cooked meal and we’ll polish up and head to the official afterparty.

This is our favourite time of year – a time where we can live in a constant state of hedonism, whether we’re chilling on a surfboard in San Sebastian, partying until dawn in a club in Ibiza, road tripping our way around Europe with the circus – we love it! And we hope you will too.

  • VALENCIA, SPAIN

    We stay just north of Valencia city, in a beach town called Puzol (Puçol in the local lingo – it’s pronounced Puthol though, confusing right?) Puzol is well connected to Valencia city, and we have our own private shuttles for La Tomatina Festival and for visits to town. Puzol is located on a stretch of beautiful Mediterranean beaches and every year we arrive and blow the town’s collective mind.

    Our camp is beachside… you can get out of your tent, make a beeline for the beach and be splashing about within 5 minutes of opening your sangria-soaked eye sockets. The campsite is not wild in the slightest, with full-time security, a bar, restaurant and shop onsite, a great swimming pool with slide, clean amenities, great authentic Spanish atmosphere (it’s not uncommon to be invited into a family’s caravan for a meal of authentic local paella).

    And there is so much more to the region outside of the festivities! Valencia has a wonderful old walled city, great modern architecture, clubs, restaurants, beaches and bars. It’s just wonderful! Come and see it! You’re going to love it! We adore it!

  • Enter all of your questions in the Ask a Question Tab and we’ll answer them here….

    Should I bring a change of clothes?
    Yes, especially if you are on the day trip. The bus driver will not let you on in tomato pulp. If you’re not on the day trip, maybe just bring a black plastic bag so they’ll let you on the bus back to camp. Also, be sure to stand directly in front of one of the hose-holding locals and let the beautiful, cold water clean you of excess fruit baggage before you head back towards the bus.

    What else should I bring?
    Sunglasses and sunscreen as it gets pretty hot, a pillow and torch for your tent, goggles, condoms, a waterproof camera, swimmers to have a dip in the pool afterwards, old shoes that can be thrown out after the madness, and shampoo if you don’t want your hair stained red for the next month. Oh and don’t forget a towel.

     

    Do you provide transport from Valencia centre?
    No, but getting to Puzol from Valencia is easy peasy and we pick you up from the train station there. Exact times will be in your pre departure information emails, otherwise email info@stoketravel.com

    What is the breakfast like?
    Breakfast is bacony and eggy and delicious. Sometimes there’a pancake or two thrown in for good measure. Our chefs are pretty fricking good at food. Let us know any dietary requirements and we’ll sort you out!

    It said on the website that it is a twin tent. Can it fit two people?
    Yes, the twin tents are two-man tents. We have two-man tents, so if you are in a group of three, one of you will be tented with a new friend of the same sex. Tents are allocated on arrival, so just let us know your preferences when you arrive. We also have an option to have a private tent for a small additional fee – just in case you don’t want to share…. or if you want to leave space for the hottie you’re going to meet at our campsite… You never know…

    And what amenities are offered at the camp site?
    The campsite is awesome! It has a giant pool, a playground, a cafe/restaurant, a little shop, hot showers, laundry area, parking, drinkable water, and it’s a five-minute walk from the beach.

    Are there lockers where we can put our passports or other important items?
    The campsite itself has no lockers, but we a campervan which gets locked every night and we can put small valuables in there during the festival and when we’re away from the campsite.

    If someone throws a tomato at my head can I kick them?
    Only if you kick them hard in the shins.

    Will the tomato be good for my skin?
    If by good you mean sting like hell but still be worth it, then yes.

    If we are camping does that mean we’ll be attacked by wild animals?
    We serve unlimited alcohol at our camps. You, my friend, will be the wild animal.

    Are these questions really the most frequently asked?
    No, but if you have any specific questions you must email info@stoketravel.com – the guys in the office know absolutely everything about anything.
